She and her team at Fit Body Weight Loss in Mesa/Gilbert now help others discover their health and lose weight following a healthy, natural and organic approach. 

FUEL YOUR BODY 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE! If you plan on hiking or participating in an outdoor physical activity, it’s important to keep your body well fed and nourished the day PRIOR (at least 24 hours in advance) A healthy breakfast the day of is a good start but won't cut it during this extreme heat! The way you feel TODAY is a direct reflection of what you ate 

What should people be eating? 

  • Healthy Combo of organic fruits and vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats. Also make sure to drink water on hot summer days aim for one gallon daily. 

What do you keep you in your cooler? 

  • I keep healthy snack on hand for on the go. Stick to high protein and an organic fresh fruit and raw nuts for any easy mini meal. Plus, water!! 
  • Most important tip: Abs (and health for that matter) are made in the KITCHEN! It's not about starving or restricting it's about eating healthy and learning to enjoy real food.
